Braves 8, Nationals 1
ATLANTA — Tim Hudson was a dual threat in his 200th career win, combining with Anthony Varvaro on a three-hitter while hitting a homer and a double for the Braves. Hudson dominated the Nationals through seven innings, but his bat almost stole the night. He led off the second with a double to left off Gio Gonzalez and hit a fifth-inning homer off Zach Duke. Bryce Harper made a leaping attempt to catch the homer, but the ball bounced off his glove and over the wall.
